BIO:

Name: Jerry Jeudy

Age: 20 years old (Junior)

Attended: University of Alabama (#4)

COMBINE MEASUREMENTS AND TESTING:

Height: 6’1”

Weight: 193 lbs.

Arms: 32 1/8”

Hands: 9 1/2”

40 YD. Dash: 4.45 seconds

Vertical Jump: 35”

Broad Jump: 120”

20 YD. Shuttle: 4.53 seconds

STRENGTHS:

Elite route running and separation. Change of direction skills are effortless. Smooth and fluid in and out of breaks, snaps routes off and puts defenders on skates. Fluidity is also evident after the catch, elusive with the ball in his hands. Play speed is more than adequate. Was featured with high volume in the slot but should have no problem when used outside.

CONCERNS:

Lack of play strength shows in blocking, effort not a problem but can be more a nuisance to defensive backs than a impediment. Needs to be more consistent in contested and high traffic situations. Lack of concentraion can cause drops to be a problem.

SUMMARY:

Overall Jerry Jeudy displays exceptional mastery of route running that would on it’s own merit put him near the top of this year’s crop of receivers (and years past) - but combined fluid change of direction with above average speed in addition to being able to line up all over the formation makes this prospect a truly elite talent. There are some catch and strength concerns, but standing out and producing among a star-studded Crimson Tide receiver room was not an easy task given the cumulative talent in that group was arguably the nation’s best (and among some of the best of all time). Jeudy has all the tools to spearheard a passing attack at the professional level.
